Chateauneuf du Pape takes its name from the time when the Pope moved to Avignon in 1309. The first Pope to move to Avignon was Pope Clement V.
It was Henri Brunier who penned the first chapter of this wonderful family story in 1891, in the village of Bédarrides, well known today as occupying the southeastern portion of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC area. In that year, he gifted to his son Hippolyte some plots of land on La Crau, a place in those days considered practically unfit for cultivation, its soil a thankless proposition due to a high density of pebbles.
Bright yellow color. Expansive aromas of white peach, candied citrus fruits, pear and pungent flowers are complemented by a hint of honey.
Concentrated orchard fruit and pit fruit flavors become spicier and more energetic with air, picking a gingery nuance.
The floral quality carries through a smooth, seamless finish, which lingers with very good tenacity.
